Resource Wars?

Just a note. So tonight Obama is addressing the nation attempting to draw us into yet another quagmire in the Middle East at the same time this story hit the newswire: US income inequality at record high. (here's the New York Times version). Welcome to life in America.

Is this the official start of the 21st century resource wars?

  1. OFFICIAL start!?

    The US-instigated resource wars began in 2003, or arguably, 2001. They will continue while the US exists.
